JOB AID: Remote Section 2 Amendment

Remote Section 2 Amendment functionality supports remote amendments to a completed Section 2 and includes the following features: 

  • Allows I-9 Managers to send an email to a remote Authorized Representative with instructions for completing an amendment to Section 2 of the Form I-9. 

  • Remote Section 2 Amendment Requests can be canceled. 

  • Multiple amendment requests can be sent for the same Form I-9. 

  • History of Remote Section 2 Amendment tasks and their status appear on the Form I-9 Summary Tab. 

  • User interface elements optimize the interface and alert the I-9 Manager when a Remote Amendment is pending. 

When using the Remote Section 2 Amendment for in-person document verification for hires that used the DHS Remote Inspection, include the following instructions for authorized representatives: 

Please meet with the employee, physically inspect their original Section 2 documents, and verify that the document information is correct. Then, make any necessary changes to the previous information.
Please update the "Additional Information" textbox with the following text: "COVID-19 Documents physically examined [DATE OF INSPECTION] [Your Initials]".  For example, if you inspected the documents on September 1, 2021 and your name is Jane Doe, enter "COVID-19 Documents physically examined 9/1/2021, JD"




Q1. Who can serve as an authorized representative?

A: An authorized representative can be 'any person' even to include family or household member. We recommend that the UC San Diego onboarding coordinator or I-9 manager schedule a call with the new employee and the authorized representative to support the authorized representative through the completion of section 2.


Q2. What if the employee brings different documents for the in-person verification? For example, if they provided a US passport during the remote verification, but at the in-person verification, they bring a Driver’s License and Unrestricted Social Security Card. Do we amend section 2 with the information or require them to bring the documents initially presented?

A: You may amend Section 2 with the new document information.


Q3: If an ID document used in the remote inspection expired, such as US passport or Driver’s license, do I need to request valid, unexpired documents at this time, or does the expired document suffice?

A: The expired documentation will suffice.


Q4: If an employee was hired during a period that we were completing remote inspections and has since separated, am I required to take any actions on separated employees?

A: If the employee has already separated, you will not be able to do the in-person inspection, but you may create an audit note to explain that the employee have been termed.
